Hochiki Europe offers industry and tech insight at FIREX International 2017

Hochiki Europe – the manufacturer of life safety solutions –  will be on Stand D100 at this year’s FIREX International (which runs from 20-22 June at London’s ExCeL), offering expert insight on key industry issues and showcasing an extensive range of its systems.

The company will be giving visitors live product demonstrations and guidance on how to select the right life safety system for specific environments. Visitors will also be introduced to Hochiki Europe’s new water detection system, LEAKalarm, as well as its analogue addressable life safety platform designated L@titude.

L@titude helps customers quickly locate and examine incidents occurring across premises in real time and from any location. The platform enables customers to create a fully customisable life safety system thanks to addressable loop detection circuits, conventional detection circuits, relay cards and additional sounder outputs.

Alongside a new conventional detector and an EN54-23 approved base sounder beacon, the next generation of ESP intelligent sensors will also be on display. These new sensors feature an integral short-circuit isolator (SCI) in the sensor itself, negating the need for SCI mounting bases.

Eaton simplifies fire systems with BiWire Ultra and CPD training

Eaton is aiming to simplify the installation of fire alarm systems in smaller premises with the launch of a two-wire system. The company’s latest fire alarm system, BiWire Ultra, is designed for fast and efficient installation in buildings such as primary schools, small hotels, offices, restaurants and retail stores where a standard conventional system would have typically been installed.

However, unlike standard conventional systems, the BiWire Ultra enables all detectors, Call Points and notification devices to share the same zone wiring, thereby reducing cabling requirements by up to 50%.

To support the launch of the new system, Eaton has developed a new CPD certified seminar on two-wire systems. The CPD aims to help electrical engineers and installers better understand the different types of fire systems available and how two-wire can save costs compared with a conventional system.

Chris Anderson, business leader for fire products at Eaton, told Risk UK: “Our new BiWire Ultra system has been designed with simplicity in mind. It’s quick and easy to install, reducing cabling costs and the time spent programming and operating the system. Feedback from our customers so far has been extremely positive.”

EatonBiWire

Intuitive fire alarm control panel

BiWire Ultra comprises an intuitive fire alarm control panel alongside a range of complementary devices including Call Points, a five-in-one fire detector plus a range of EN5423-approved beacons and sounder beacons.

BiWire Ultra is the latest addition to Eaton’s comprehensive suite of life safety solutions, which aim to help building owners and managers meet their safety obligations in the most effective and efficient manner.

Available in two-, four- or eight-zone variants, the system can support up to 52 devices per zone. Wiring faults are easily found by initiating a flashing LED indicator on the detector nearest the fault.

Supplied with a back-up battery to ensure the correct ratings and reduce complexity, the central panel has an attractive appearance and a simple user interface. Conforming to the requirements of BS 5839-1, commissioning and maintenance is straightforward. It’s easy for one person to carry out testing and ensure the healthy state of the system, as is required by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order of 2005.

Additional functionality of the system includes a class change facility for schools, which automates the class change bell via the fire alarm, expansion card support for fire alarm routing equipment and fire protection equipment and an interlink relay for connecting two panels together.

Anderson added: “The BiWire Ultra range is the first of its type to offer EN5423-approved beacons so, whatever the risk assessment, premises fitted with a BiWire Ultra system comply with the latest standards for fire notification. However, the legal and moral obligations of fire safety are not only concerned with installation, but also ongoing maintenance and testing. BiWire Ultra is designed to make that process straightforward. With all of this in mind, we believe this range will appeal to a diverse cross-section of small and medium-sized premises where owners need protection without problems.”
